The South West Coast Path around here is also the lin eof the Tark Trail. This Trail follows the journey through north Devon of Tarka the Otter in the book of that name. The book, which evokes superb descriptions of north Devon in the 1920s was written by Henry Williamson who lived for many years at Georgeham, just inland of Putsborough and Croyde. There is a memorial stone to him as the path descends to the art deco style Baggy House.
Baggy Point was a favourite spot of Henry Williamson and it features more than once in Tarka the Otter. As you approach the Point the views ahead begin to open out. If the weather is clear, the coast around to Clovelly and Hartland Point will be visible with Lundy on the seaward horizon.
Baggy is also a favourite location for rock climbers and they are frequently seen on the steeply inclined rock slabs ahead or on the sheer cliffs behind.
